My Daily Beast 2021

In 2021 I made the New Year's resolution to do some exercise every day. Since I'm not into sports I decided to go for a walk and take a photo of an animal every day and thus make an iNaturalist streak. I also posted my finds on a German nature forum and there it somehow changed into finding a different species every day.
I am privileged to live in the south of Spain, there is probably a higher number of species than in Germany for example. Since I don't have a car my radius was rather limited. After I got vaccinated I did make regular bus trips to the vicinity, mainly in the province of Málaga.
I took photos with a Panasonic Lumix FZ82 with a 60 x zoom and in August I bought a used Olympus Tough TG6 for better macros. Since it is waterproof I also started snorkelling and was surprised what you can find at a "family beach" in the middle of Málaga. By the end of October when it became increasingly unlikely to find anything new during the day, I switched to nightly walks and looked out for moths on lit facades or shop windows.
In short, an otherwise boring year without holidays or larger trips turned out to be quite entertaining and challenging. I found a lot of species new to me and especially the snorkelling and moths opened up completely new habitats. I didn't lose any weight, though.
I tagged the chosen species of the day with "mydailybeast2021" and finally I made a photo book out of it.
